2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample pour in NYC. Poured a murky brown our with lighter brown tiny head and barely any lace. Aromas was lacking tremendously, very subtle notes of oatmeal, cinnamon, maybe some cherry in there...hard to tell. Taste was a little more malty with a cherry aftertaste. Still kinf od boring. This beer looked incredible on paper but was a total bust compared to the rest of the lineup. Cask beers arent for everyone.

Cigar City smokes NYC, Rattle N Hum. This cask was only made available very late afternoon, after most of the raters left. It was very smooth, black with a small head. For a cask, an above average mouthfeel. Like a dry stout, some good hops.
